by Chris Harnick, posted Dec 1st 2011 12:10PM
Tina Fey Betty White GrammysThe Grammys have always put some of our favorite artists up against one another, but the latest batch of nominations is giving us one very epic battle: Tina Fey vs. Betty White. Say what!?

Both funny women have been nominated for Best Spoken Word Album, Fey for her reading of 'Bossypants' and White for 'If You Ask Me (And Of Course You Won't).' We can't wait for the (hopefully) hilarious split-screen reactions from the actual ceremony.

White and Fey aren't the only TV stars to pick up nominations.

Seth MacFarlane picked up a few noms, one for the 'Family Guy' original song 'Christmastime Is Killing Us' and another Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. Over in the Best Comedy Album category, Kathy Griffin, Louis C.K. and Lonely Island are up against one another.

Betty White InterviewBetty White is kissing and telling.

The 'Hot In Cleveland' (Wed., 10PM ET on TV Land) star planted a wet one on Neil Patrick Harris on 'Live! With Kelly' -- video is below -- and now she's revealing all about that instant-classic daytime kiss.

"Oh yes, a very good kisser," White said of the 'How I Met Your Mother' star's smooching skills in a red-carpet interview with AOL TV. "Not that I go around doing the research, but that's not a bad idea."

On 'Hot In Cleveland,' now in its third season, White plays Elka, the cantankerous caretaker of the home now occupied by Joy (Jane Leeves), Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli) and Victoria (Wendie Malick).

Betty White Decides to Start Naming Names on 'The Daily Show' (VIDEO)

Betty White, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Watching the progression of the show from backstage, Betty White had a stark realization that she revealed on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). She's been going about her celebrity all wrong, striving to keep her personal life private.

Instead, she should be naming names. The drawback, though, is that she's pushing 90 now -- which by the way isn't an accomplishment, it's just something that happens -- and it's hard to remember the guys she's had.

Jon Stewart suggested she use headshots to remember them, but you don't always want to remember what they looked like. Sometimes the hazy glasses of memory will make things far better than they really were, and that can be a very good thing.

Neil Patrick Harris Sneaks a Kiss From Betty White (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 29th 2011 12:30PM
Yesterday, 'Live! With Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) guest-host and 'How I Met Your Mother Star' Neil Patrick Harris joked that he wanted to make out with Betty White. On Tuesday he got his chance, as the 89-year-old comedienne stopped by 'Live' in advance of the 'Hot in Cleveland' Season 3 premiere (Wed., Nov. 30 at 10PM ET on TV Land.)

The two talked about a potential White 'HIMYM' cameo that never came to be. Before White's late-career resurgence, Harris wanted White to guest-star on the show as sexy cougar that his character Barney Stinson would hook up with. White shared that she was thrilled after getting a call from a 'HIMYM' producer asking her to be on an episode, but never heard back about it.

To make up for the missed opportunity, Harris asked White for a kiss on the cheek. When she leaned in, he turned his face around snuck one on the lips. Something tells us she didn't mind.

Ace Frehley: KISS's Code-Word For Cocaine Was 'Betty White' (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Nov 3rd 2011 5:30PM
Ace Frehley, aka the Spaceman, landed in the 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC) studios to talk about his life in and out of the glam-rock band, KISS. Matt Lauer got right to the point: "I think anybody who watched KISS over the years, probably the thought crossed their minds that you guys dabbled in drugs." Ace fully copped to embracing the '70s lifestyle.

"You gotta realize, Studio 54 and that whole scene in Manhattan in the '70s, a lot of people were doing cocaine." So much so that the band had a code name for the party-drug. "Well, we called it Betty White," he said, giggling.

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 16th 2011 10:45AM

This week, several of our favorite TV clips were infused with political undertones. Betty White prepared to run for the presidency on the double entendre ticket, while Bill O'Reilly wouldn't high five Letterman after admitting he was wrong about the Iraq War. Hank Williams Jr. went on 'The View' to try to explain himself after getting sacked from 'Monday Night Football,' but all that came out was jibberish.

LL Cool J dropped some knowledge in a BET Awards acceptance speech, in what proved to be the high-point of the week for Blackberry. And thankfully, Simon Cowell dumbed it all down by marveling at Wendy Williams' boobs.

Betty White Proves She's 'Still Hot' in Luciana Music Video (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 13th 2011 1:30PM
Betty White is America's favorite senior citizen, and she's still sassy after all these years. The comedienne is still going strong at 89-years-old, starring on 'Hot in Cleveland' and now appearing in a new music video from techno rapper Luciana aptly titled 'I'm Still Hot.'

In the video, White sits on a throne and eats cake with a bunch of shirtless, buff younger dudes while singing the song's chorus. According to 'Good Day NY' (weekdays, 9AM ET on Fox) White appeared in the video to raise awareness for the Lifeline Program, which provides information on financial options for seniors. In addition, part of the proceeds from the song's iTunes sales will be donated to the Greater Los Angeles Zoo association.

Betty White Announces She's Running for President on 'The Late Late Show' (VIDEO)

Betty White, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Betty White is always a hoot when she makes her frequent stops to 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS). She usually spotlights some zany new job she has and passes sexual innuendos back and forth with Craig Ferguson, but this time she had some serious business to talk about.

White has decided to run for president, and she's doing it for a reason many Americans can relate to in these tough economic times. "I needed some cash," she said. "I'm flat broke."

Unfortunately, she didn't put as much thought into her campaign posters. She brought one to show Ferguson, which mimicked the color style of the Barack Obama 'Hope' posters. But her message might be misconstrued. The posters read 'White Power.'

Kathie Lee Tells Betty White a Dirty Pirate Joke (VIDEO)

Kathie Lee Gifford's been taking a vacation from 'Today' (9AM ET on NBC) this week, and spent part her time off on the set of 'Hot in Cleveland,' filming an upcoming cameo. The location gave Gifford the perfect 'Funny Friday' audience, as Betty White has never met a dirty joke she didn't like.

Gifford told White the joke in her dressing room. It began, "A pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel down his pants," and ended with America's lovably crass grandma cracking up. We won't spoil the punchline, but it rest assured, it included them both making their best pirate "Aaarrrr," noises.

Emmys Opening Musical Number: Did Jane Lynch or Jimmy Fallon Do It Better? (VIDEO)

by Jean Bentley, posted Sep 18th 2011 9:05PM
Jane Lynch Emmys openerJane Lynch kicked off the 2011 Emmy Awards with a musical number filled with celebrity cameos (Leonard Nimoy!), which, coincidentally, is how Jimmy Fallon kicked off the 2010 ceremony.

So, how did the two compare?

Well, Fallon went big with a 'Glee' tribute and Bruce Springsteen cover, while Lynch took the solo route with an original number about the magic of television and how everyone on TV lives in the same building.

Both recruited a ton of celebs to help out, but Fallon had the stars sing along with him while Lynch dropped into different show sets. Both included a requisite 'Dancing With the Stars' dig, though.

Who nabbed the bigger stars?

This particular piece of salty dialogue called for White to say that her screen name was "Bender Over," and she lost it. With the cast assembled in directors chairs on set, Wendie Malick reminded White of that shoot. "That night when you did 'Bender Over,' you just could not hang on," she said. "You absolutely could not."
